One of my favorites

This fun, rhyming book examines the issue of discrimination in a way that makes a person realize how senseless it is to exclude or dislike people who are different from you. I appreciate the fun and silliness in this book, but love that it has such a great message.

The Sneetches

A great Dr. Seuss story with an even better lesson.

Mrs. McCave

My favorite story here is the story of Mrs. McCave who had 23 sons and she named them all Dave. It's short, it's funny, and it reminds me of Shel Silverstein poems. I enjoy Dr. Seuss, but some of his stories get pretty long, especially when you have a kid who wants them read over and over again. Sneetches and Other Stories is a great way to enjoy classic Seuss with greater variety. And seriously, don't miss out on Mrs. McCave. That's a winner.

Great Lesson

The Sneetches is one of my all time favorite Dr. Seuss stories about how the Sneetches are all really the same even though they may look different. A great lesson for kids to learn, which I wanted to pass down to my son. When I read it to him, he seemed to enjoy it.


star or no star they're all the same

A favorite growing up

I remember reading (hearing) this book countless times growing up, and purchased it for my own children. I highly recommend it. The story of the Sneetches is very valuable for discussing prejudice with young children.


There are a few stories in this book, and all are good. My favorite though are the sneetches and the zax.
